In the event of severe weather and where there is a genuine risk of flooding, Carmarthenshire County Council will provide filled sandbags to properties upon request.
Our primary response will be to flooding incidents originating from the highway and non-main river sources.
Main Rivers are governed by the Environment Agency, who may not always be in a position to provide sandbags, depending on demand and local circumstances.
Therefore each request made to Carmarthenshire County Council will be considered in relation to the prevailing circumstances, irrespective of the flooding source.
It should be borne in mind that there is a limit to both the availability and the ability to distribute sandbags, particularly when wide-scale flooding is being experienced.
Therefore, reliance on the County Council to provide sandbags should not be considered as being the primary means of protection.
